The current architecture is quite flexible. The core of deskbar basically consists
of a ModuleList/ModuleLoader and a plugin api. You can initialize the whole shebang
(async/sync backends and callbacks) with < 10 lines of python, and be ready to search.

At the moment of writing the 
GUI is not *completely* separated from the searching interface, but that is 
likely (and easy) to change... Exporting services over dbus will not be
a major undertaking - I haven't discussed this with the other devs
though, but I will.

We have a beagle plugin based on libbeagle (by Raphael Slinckx)
-bindings. An it rocks I might add; I had no idea beagle was this fast.
I mean seriously fast.
